We combine Sloan Digitital Sky Survey (SDSS) and WISE photometry for the full SDSS spectroscopic galaxy sample, creating spectral energy distributions (SEDs) that cover λ = 0.4–22 μm for an unprecedentedly large and comprehensive sample of 858,365 present-epoch galaxies. Using MAGPHYS, we then simultaneously and consistently model both the attenuated stellar SED and the dust emission at 12 and 22 μm, producing robust new calibrations for monochromatic mid-IR star formation rate (SFR) proxies… 
GALEX–SDSS–WISE LEGACY CATALOG (GSWLC): STAR FORMATION RATES, STELLAR MASSES, AND DUST ATTENUATIONS OF 700,000 LOW-REDSHIFT GALAXIES
In this paper, we present the GALEX–SDSS–WISE Legacy Catalog (GSWLC), a catalog of physical properties (stellar masses, dust attenuations, and star formation rates [SFRs]) for ∼700,000 galaxies with
The effects of star formation history in the SFR–M* relation of H ii galaxies
We discuss the implications of assuming different star formation histories (SFH) in the relation between star formation rate (SFR) and mass derived by the spectral energy distribution fitting (SED).
SCALING RELATIONS BETWEEN WARM GALACTIC OUTFLOWS AND THEIR HOST GALAXIES
We report on a sample of 48 nearby, star-forming galaxies observed with the Cosmic Origin Spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope. We measure the kinematics of warm gas in galactic outflows using
THE STAR FORMATION MAIN SEQUENCE: THE DEPENDENCE OF SPECIFIC STAR FORMATION RATE AND ITS DISPERSION ON GALAXY STELLAR MASS
The dispersion of the star formation main sequence (SFMS) reflects the diversity of star formation histories (SFHs) and variation in star formation rates (SFRs) in star-forming galaxies (SFGs) with
Photometric Redshifts and Stellar Masses for Galaxies from the DESI Legacy Imaging Surveys
We present a catalog of photometric redshifts and stellar masses for galaxies from imaging surveys serving the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument project. The imaging footprints cover an area of
A Widespread, Clumpy Starburst in the Isolated Ongoing Dwarf Galaxy Merger dm1647+21
Interactions between pairs of isolated dwarf galaxies provide a critical window into low-mass hierarchical, gas-dominated galaxy assembly and the build-up of stellar mass in low-metallicity systems.
A panchromatic spatially resolved analysis of nearby galaxies – I. Sub-kpc-scale main sequence in grand-design spirals
We analyse the spatially resolved relation between stellar mass (M⋆) and star formation rate (SFR) in disc galaxies (i.e. the main sequence, MS). The studied sample includes eight nearby face-on
Stellar Populations of over 1000 z ̃ 0.8 Galaxies from LEGA-C: Ages and Star Formation Histories from D n 4000 and Hδ
Drawing from the LEGA-C data set, we present the spectroscopic view of the stellar population across a large volume- and mass-selected sample of galaxies at large look-back time. We measure the 4000
HST Hα grism spectroscopy of ROLES: a flatter low-mass slope for the z ~ 1 SSFR-mass relation
We present measurements of star formation rates (SFRs) for dwarf galaxies (M* ∼ 108.5 M⊙ M⊙) at z ∼ 1 using near-infrared slitless spectroscopy from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) by targeting and
Global dust attenuation in disc galaxies: strong variation with specific star formation and stellar mass, and the importance of sample selection
We study the relative dust attenuation-inclination relation in 78,721 nearby galaxies using the axis ratio dependence of optical-NIR colour, as measured by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), the
